Waiting on reply for 145k suspense, thriller, sci-fi.

While I wait, and I encourage y'all to do the same, get the mailing list together for pre-launching. Update your blogs, twitter, face-pages, and other social media memberships you're a part of. Maybe even become members with the slant of your author status. Clean your profiles of unwanted advertisements and do some networking with those you're linked with. Not pushy but letting people know you exist and are a positive individual. Make it easy on your future agent, will ya? Set-up your website or do your research for what website provider you'll use and supplies you'll need to accommodate visitors. Start marketing initiatives and pre-launch ideas for success.
You see, the thing is that agents know the business, but they can't do ALL the heavy lifting. Your books are, and will only be, as good as your continuing effort. Here's a tidbit for you guys. Fifty Shades of Grey was a self-published novel based on a fan fiction dialog for Twilight lovers. The writing was poor, BUT... the fan base was already there. She had done her marketing and became a success. She was an Indie author, y'all.

Is there another link for his website? The one on his profile isn't working for me.

Super fast request for the full manuscript--a couple of hours and on Labor Day. Fingers crossed!

Hi Catsamoa79,
Since Publisher's Marketplace is the closest thing he has to a website, I'd say go by that and use the aol address. I'll change his profile as well. Thanks.

Patrick - The Publisher's Marketplace site has his email as profschia@aol.com. Do you know if this is correct or the bellsouth.net email?

Thanks, but will pass.

I wish I had read the comments here before I sent him my query as he sounds quite unpleasant.
